Nealy (6-3, 285) played at Texas A&M. Last season, he recorded 42 tackles, 7.5 tackles-for-loss and two sacks for the Aggies. He played both defensive end and defensive tackle during his time at Texas A&M, which adds versatility to his game.
Maci, a defensive end, went undrafted out of Purdue. He had 37 tackles, 6.5 tackles-for-loss and two sacks in 2012. Maci (6-4, 245) played some linebacker in college, but he’ll fit in as a defensive end in the Lions’ scheme.
The team released defensive tackle Michael Brooks (East Carolina) and receiver Chastin West (Fresno State) to make room on the 90-man roster.
